We mentioned how Boom! was doing its best impersonation of Dynamite, and announcing its San Diego Comic Con news before the show actually started. Such as the announcement of James Tynion's Memetic.
A three-part limited series of oversized issues (each issue covers a 24-hour period) that shows the true terror of the internet. The world will end not with a bang, but with a single online image when creator and writer James Tynion IV (THE WOODS, Batman Eternal) teams up with newcome Eryk Donovan (In the Dark Horror Anthology, House in the Wall) to bring horror to a whole new generation this October.
In MEMETIC #1: A Meme is an idea that starts with an individual, and then spreads to multiple persons and potentially entire societies. Richard Dawkins suggests a meme's success comes from its effectiveness to the host. But history shows that destructive memes can spread just as rapidly through society. MEMETIC shows the progression of a weaponized meme that leads to the utter annihilation of the human race within 72 hours. The root of this apocalypse is a single image on the internet, a "meme" in the popular sense. A meme that changes everything.
The 48-page MEMETIC #1 arrives in comic book shops on October 22nd with a main cover by series artist Eryk Donovan for the price of $4.99.
